Samsung refrigerator compressor was replaced by husband

Customer Question

Samsung refrigerator compressor was replaced by husband yesterday. (he does this type of work on occasion for the state). The old compressor was going out, making a lot of high pitched sound. The refrig and freezer were still maintain temps. He brought all the equipment home, a vacuum, gauges, solder, and refrigerant. He replaced it and it started right up, no excess noise. The lcd display was showing that the temps were falling, we went to bed. We wake up and the milk is warm freezer items getting soft. The display said -4 for the freezer and 34 for the refrig. He tried resetting the display by simultaneously holding down 2 buttons, it reset to 0. After a while the temps went up to the actual temps that were in the refrig and freezer. (I have a scientific Taylor thermometer with a probe that is accurate and recorded the highest and lowest temps). The freezer now says 32 on its display, the Taylor says 28. The refrig says 54, the Taylor says 57. He re-vacuumed the air and replaced the refrigerant, and no change. He says the fans are running because he can hear them (?). He says there is no refrigerant leak, and has left the gauges on so that it can show that.
